Q In the past, tenants have left behind their old office furniture. Most manufacturers say it isn’t being made anymore, and they really can’t do anything with it. What options do we have?

A Being in a small market makes it more difficult to dispose ofsurplus furniture. You can always donate the excess to local charitiesor other needy causes if you are in a rush to clear the space.
Anotheroption would be to find a furniture remanufacturer that offers optionslike asset banking. Unfortunately, one of the largest national removalfranchises, 1-800-GOT-JUNK, is not yet in your area. This company isadding franchises rapidly, so check back often.
